It was recommended to us to check out Bubba's Burgers when we visited. After many stops for fish, really just wanted a burger and thought this would be the best place to go. The burgers were good, not great! But for just a simple burger we would recommend.

Nothing exciting. Fair price for the burger and cooked to order pretty quickly. Uninspiring otherwise, and the onion rings wound up costing $1 apiece. Which is outrageous. Serviceable but there are better choices in the immediate area.

I don't write bad reviews but this restaurant wasn't professional at all. Restaurant is suppose to close at 8pm. I'm waiting in line at 715pm and the staff serve all their friends and when it comes for us to order they tell us they are closed. Kids are running the restaurant and weren't professional at all.

Decent fast food burger...basic but good. I enjoyed the banana shake. We also ordered onion rings which were not exceptional..a lot of breading and not much onion.

This is a popular place with a long line during the day. The burgers are good and the milk shakes amazing. Since we'd eaten at the kapaa location, I knew it could be just a bit better thus the 4 stars.

Great burgers and very reasonable prices. Great pickles! The place has no ambiance but you don't got there for service.
